Shouha’s Chinese Hibiscus Pattern

Flower Patterned
Background Colour: Camel Brown (also in Adzuki Red)
Pattern: Hibiscus
Weave: Shouha

There are many examples of stylized designs of freely distributed large flowers, but this unaffected pattern of hibiscuses compells the veiwer to draw near. Hibiscus is a general term for rosemallows, including the Chinese hibiscus.

大輪の花文を駆使し様式化したデザイン例は多々あるが、これは仏桑華(ハイビスカス)そのもので飾り気がなく、見る人に迫る図柄。ハイビスカスは、仏桑華を含むアオイ科フヨウ属の植物の総称。
